The Quick Rise of The Nautilus Maldives

The Nautilus, which opened only in February 2019, has already firmly cemented its place on the international stage of uber-luxe properties, creating shock waves through the hospitality industry. Picking up three of the most coveted travel awards and recognitions; Conde Nast Traveller’s ‘The Gold List’ and ‘Readers’ Choice Awards’ as well as Tatler’s Travel Awards 2021, The Nautilus’ surely must be doing something right.

Sparking interest from global journalists and publication houses such as The Evening Standard and Forbes USA to CNN Travel, Lonely Planet and Harper’s Bazaar, the extent of the quick global interest in The Nautilus speaks for itself.

But just how has this immensely private island (just 242 x 249 metres) with just 26 houses and residences managed to trigger such global interest so quickly?

Here are just a few reasons why and how The Nautilus are actively dodging the current travel industries shots and maintaining their winning streak in their own lane of luxury…

  1. Redefining luxury

The Nautilus isn’t just another palm-fringed, white sand Maldivian property. Instead, it’s actually offering an entirely different lifestyle. A lifestyle where time stands still, where there are no clocks nor opening or closing times. No dress codes or restrictions to embodying a liberating bohemian spirit.

  1. Whispers only

To many, the Maldives is a place saturated with bragging-rights.  A bucket list location where you can broadcast to the world your partly submerged in the lagoon hammock photos. The Nautilus shies away from attracting such overt advertisement. Instead, it whispers to discreet ultra-high net worth travellers who wish to quietly fly under the radar and enjoy their Maldivian escape in total privacy and seclusion.

  1. A family affair

With just 26 houses and residences on the beach or perched above the lagoon all with temperature controlled freshwater infinity pools and expansive decks, The Nautilus offers a truly family-friendly environment. From mini Solasta Spa treatments for little islanders to all-day private yacht excursions for the entire family, The Nautilus offers experiences that transcend generations.

  1. Bespoke beyond all expectations

From tailored spa journeys to totally personalised education programmes for the island’s mini VIPs, The Nautilus is an expert in its ability to adapt to the needs and requirement of every single guest. With your own dedicated House Master offering full 24/7 butler services, guests’ preferences are taken even before they have left to travel to the island. Where you can expect the expected, The Nautilus’ fastidious attention to detail and innovation of bespoke experiences sets it above the rest.

  1. An entrance to remember

At The Nautilus, all guests, no matter what house or residence category they have booked will be greeted directly at the door of their private jet or commercial flight. This is just a small facet of The Nautilus’ unique CIP arrival service – luggage, immigration and customs are dealt with on behalf of each guest before being privately escorted to the seaplane lounge. This special service can be arranged for guests upon departure also at an additional cost.
